Great work on Scale Factors yesterday everyone! So, we're going to look at drawing using scale factors today. Remember to use a ruler and be accurate! You may choose to print the sheets below out as it may be easier than completing it online. I have put the work online though if you cannot print at home.

When we draw a shape using a scae factor, we need to calculate each side as we go. See the recorded lesson for examples.

Mrs Brant will be leading us through some writing in our Google Classroom Meeting. Again, make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.

Happy Tuesday Year 6! Some lovely writing Year 6, we have a class full of great journalists!

Today, we are going to discuss how to structure the final paragraph of the main body and the reorientation. If you didn’t manage to join us for today’s Google Classroom session, please take a look at the video recording in the class announcements. I have explained and modelled some of the features you will need today.

The final paragraph of the main body should explain how the people involved feel about what happened. It usually includes another quote, journalistic phrases and remains in past tense.

A reorientation is the final paragraph of a news report. It should tell us what is happening now or in the future. It is usually written in present or past tense, whichever is appropriate.

TASK – Today, we will be working in our blue books, so please write today’s date and an ‘E’ in your margin. The title today is, ‘News Report – Reorientation’

Using my model for my own news report, I would like you to write the final paragraph of your main body and the reorientation. They should include the following:

• The way people involved with the company feel about what happened, including the manager.
• I would like to see one embedded clause to help tell the story.
• I want to see at least two journalistic words or phrases. See yesterday’s document.
• Include two quotes from people who work for the company, one of these should probably be the manager.
• Change tenses between the paragraphs, past to either present or future.

Keep up the good work Year 6, I love reading your writing!

PSHE

Hey Year 6 – glad to see your interaction with the BBFC resources yesterday! Hopefully it highlighted why age ratings are important. Today we’re looking at how these ratings, and those used for video games and online content, can help young people make good decisions.

Video games have their own age ratings, processed by a group called PEGI (Pan European Game Information). PEGI ratings are decided based on many different elements a game may contain, including violence, bad language and in-game purchases. If you would like to learn more, please watch the clip below.

Although the internet, films and video games can be a lot of fun, they can also contain a lot of material that young people can find upsetting and uncomfortable. During lockdown, films and online content have been a popular way to spend time for adults and children alike. But if you were to come across something that you thought wasn’t suitable, what should you do?

Sometimes, it can feel like everyone in your class has watched a certain film or played a particular video game. These may not always be appropriate for your age, and parents may decide they don’t wish for you to see them yet. They are doing this to protect you from becoming scared or upset. It is important that you do not let peer pressure persuade you to do things that may lead to negative feelings in the future.

Tips

1. Check the age rating for the material you are viewing – this may give you a warning as to whether it might contain unsuitable content.
2. If you have seen something upsetting or inappropriate, tell a trusted adult immediately.
3. If an adult is not around at the time, there are other avenues to find help. Read the information on the link below and click the links to explore other options.

4. You can ask your trusted adults to set up parental controls that may block content that is not for your age range. Netflix, YouTube and the BBC have the option to set up a children’s or young person’s profile, so you can only see things that are appropriate.

TASK – Today we will be working in our blue books, so please write today’s date and an ‘E’ in the margin. The title is ‘Film Scenarios and Situations’.

Take a look at the pdf attached below. It contains several scenarios that you may have been in yourself at some point. Knowing what you now know about film classification, what might you advise? Write a number in the margin for the scenario you are on, then write some advice you might give to the children involved.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! Mrs B J

History

Having now looked at a whole range of World War 2 campaigns, we're going to look at one of the ones that would have probably effected you the most: evacuation!

Task - Have a look at the document below. It will show you the list of items children were told to pack for evacuation. You then need to make a poster showing what things a child evacuee would put into their evacutation suitcase, including what is essential or not - you were only allowed one suitcase so you couldn't take everything
